Project Details

This program supports children affected by HIV/Aids, either they may be positive themselves or one or both parents are positive or may have died from the disease. It provides basic education in government schools, health support through referral to medical services for injections, immunisations and other health problems, nutritional supplements, health and hygiene awareness education, women’s and child health issues, HIV/Aids awareness and stigmatisation education, and income generation programs for parents.

The support is provided in a village or rural context and seeks to keep families together. Sponsors receive one progress report and photo of their child each year and correspondence with the child is not possible in order to keep costs down.

Encourage a friend to support Village-based care for children effected by HIV/Aids.
